Ch. 15--ANOVA

1. Use of flow chart

2. Overview

3. The F test

a. sampling distribution of F

b. F table

c. when to use the F test

i. more than 2 groups

i. F vs. Multiple t-tests

4. Generating Hypotheses for ANOVA

5. Calculating the statistic

a. Conceptual F

i. Total Variance

ii. Between-group variance

iii. Within group variance

iv. Fobt = sb2/ sw2

b. Calculating Fobt

Source of variance SS df s2 (MS) Fobt

Between groups formula k-1 Ssb / dfb sb2/ sw2

Within groups formula N-k Ssw / dfw

Total Formula N-1

SSb =

SSw =

SSt =

6. Evaluating Fobt--compare with fcrit

7. Comparison between F and t

i. testing means

ii. t2 = F

8. Assumptions of ANOVA

i. normal distribution

ii. Homogeneity of variance

iii. Robust

9. Two-way, or Factorial ANOVA

i. Factorial experiment: when two or more factors are assessed

ii. Use a two-way ANOVA

iii. Components to understand:

a. main effects= effect of one IV independent of the other

b. interaction= when the effect of one IV is not the same at all levels of the other IV

iv. F's for main effects

a. IV1 : F = sr2 /sw2

b. IV2 F = sc2 /sw2

c. Interaction: F = src2 /sw2
